IFE Recognised Fire Risk Assessor Course
Suitable for everyone who wants to learn how to complete a fire risk assessment or gain greater understanding of the process, our IFE Recognised Fire Risk Assessor course is based at our office in Newbury, Berkshire. You do not need prior knowledge of fire safety in order to complete the course.
With 4 1⁄2 days of learning plus an exam, the course covers the Building Regulations Approved Document B Vol 2 as well as looking at the governing legislation (Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005), relevant guidance documents and British Standards and fire risk assessment templates.
Delegates will leave with a good understanding of the fire risk assessment process, be able to calculate occupancy capacities, understand travel distances and requirements of means of escape, compartmentation and required levels of fire resistance, management of fire safety arrangements, understand fire alarm system design, emergency lighting provision and firefighting equipment and be able to establish a suitable provision.
The exam is made up of written exercises and plan marking. The course also includes a physical fire risk assessment of a building putting into practice what has been learnt during the course.
This course is recognised by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) and can be used to contribute towards the academic portion of an application for their register of Fire Risk Assessors.
